Mice will typically stay in the darkened areas of your home. They'll build a nest in a space in your home that you don't typically venture into, and your storage spaces are often the best places for them to hide. If you have found signs of mice in your storage, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly where they are located. It can then be a bit difficult to get rid of them as well. If you suspect you have mice in your storage space, read on for a few tips to help you get rid of them.
Start Setting Traps
It's best to begin setting traps right away if you suspect you have mice in your home. Set the traps wherever you've seen signs of them, such as where you've seen mice droppings, or anywhere you have seen the actual mice. Set multiple traps, and check them often to ensure you don't have dead mice sitting in these traps for days on end. You'll want to check these traps daily and reset them if you've trapped a mouse. Continue to set and reset these traps as long as you are catching mice. You may be surprised at how many you trap in your home.
Clear Out This Space
If you have a lot of storage in your home, you'll want to clear some of this out. You more than likely have a lot of unnecessary clutter in your home that you don't particularly need. Clear out the clutter to help prevent mice from having space to make a nest or places to hide. If you have a lot of clutter, clean and clear it out as best as you can and organize it so you can see things better, in the event you have a mouse problem again.
Put Your Belongings In Sealed Totes
By putting your belongings in totes, you can help prevent the mice from getting into your belongings. If you have a lot of items, place them in a sealed tote. Consider using totes that will close tightly to prevent the mice from being able to get inside. This will also protect your belongings as well.
If you suspect you have mice in your storage space in your home, you need to pay attention to the signs and use the above-mentioned tips to help you get rid of them. If you continue to have a mouse problem, hire a professional pest control company for mice removal treatments.
